A good source and probably the best source for free trading strategies is Quantified Strategies. There are plenty of sites on the internet that are dedicated to trading strategies. (One of them is of course our paid service and memberships for trading strategies)
The problem with the vast majority of them is that the vast majority of trading systems and trading strategies do not work at all. I would say that over 99% of everything related to trading strategies online is garbage. So when you search for the term trading strategies on the internet the majority of top results from Google is a waste of your time. The strategies presented by the search on Google do simply not work. Google algorithms are not advanced enough (yet) to sort the good stuff from the bad.
The good stuff, the 1% of trading strategies that might be working is well hidden online. Fortunately, there is a place online that has gathered a huge amount of trading strategies (over 100) that actually work. Some of them are also free. Do yourself a favor and check it out for yourself. Like I said, lots of stuff there is free so it does not cost you anything to click over there. Here you can find it: Free trading strategies.
